Cho oyu Expedition

Cho Oyu is the sixth highest mountain in the world which is located 30km west of Mt Everest at the border between China and Nepal. It is considered the easiest 8000m peak in the world with low avalanche risk and a short and direct summit ascent. Cho Oyu is popular because of it’s relatively, non-technical climbing route. It is said that Cho Oyu  means ‘Goddess of Turquoise’. The peak can be climbed from both Nepalese side up on south face and north-east ridge routes and Tibetan side along the Northwest ridge route with North approach. The mountain is climbable during both spring and autumn seasons. The expedition starts in Kathmandu. T he first part of this expedition is a five days drive and acclimatization trip to Kodari( the border town between Nepal and China), Zhangmu, Nyalam, Tingri and the Cho Oyu’s Chinese Base Camp. From the Chinese base camp you will drive and trek up the Interim Camp (5360m) and the Advanced Base Camp (5720m). From here our climbing schedule starts. Dawn in Nepal Adventure has been organizing fully supported mountaineering expeditions; it has one of the most experienced expedition crews in the Himalayas; excellent Climbing Sherpa guides and cook.
